Hi everyone, my name is Heather K. Jones. I'm a nutritionist and nutritionist for the deephealing cookbooks (so excited that book five, Skin-flavored meal preparation, is out now!). I also work with women struggling with emotional eating and during this VERY emotional time on the planet. Understanding how your emotions affect your health and wellbeing is more important than ever.
Without the inner tools to stay centered, we can easily become overwhelmed and drained and then use food to unconsciously feel safe, create a false sense of control, or calm or suppress unpleasant emotions.
If your food is particularly unbalanced right now, be gentle with yourself and realize that this is an INVITATION to understand yourself and your life much more deeply.
Creating soulful, hands-on routines that support your mental, emotional, and physical health not only naturally boosts your immunity and reduces stress while you eat, but also Reconnect with the healing and strengthening power of your own heart. You will remember just how capable, resilient, and high performing you really are!
Also know that taking care of yourself and prioritizing your health will also give you the energy to support others from a more grounded location.
And I have tons of FREE resources, articles, and videos to help you love yourself healthily HERE, including this powerful 30-Day Weight Loss Management Challenge.
On Thursday, September 24th, at 12:00 noon (CET) I will give emotional support and guidance while eating in a FREE group coaching session on my Facebook group "Feel Better, Eat Better" HERE.
Your body is an amazing self-healing machine! Every minute of every day, it ensures that you stay healthy and alive. One of the best ways to support your body and boost your immunity is to provide it with nutrient-rich foods.
Plants are your best source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. This super easy-to-make Citrus Immunity Shot from my nutritionist Danielle Omar is a delicious addition to your day.
Ingredients and Benefits of Immunity Shots
The phytonutrients in plants are very useful, especially when it comes to supporting your body's natural detoxification systems and boosting your immune system. Here's how each of the ingredients in this immunity shot nourishes, powers and supports your body:
- Grapefruit: Rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin A, two powerful vitamins that promote immunity.
- Lemon: A good source of Vitamin C with antiviral and antibacterial properties.
- Orange: It's also high in vitamin C and beta-cryptoxanthin, a carotenoid that your body converts to vitamin A.
- Ginger: Contains gingerol, which can lower the risk of infection and inhibit the growth of many different types of bacteria.
- Turmeric: Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is a powerful anti-inflammatory and very powerful antioxidant.
- Black pepper: When you add some black pepper to your turmeric and increase the absorption of curcumin by almost 2000%!
- Garlic: Improves immune function and contains sulfur compounds that enter the body through digestion and have many medicinal effects.
Make a fresh batch at least once a week – take one shot in the morning and another later to improve your afternoon! For an extra boost of vitamin C, add a red pepper and some fresh lime juice for a different flavor.
